of the "washington post." fair to say president obama has put himself in a box on syria. he kept talking for months about red lines, game changers, but he's clearly mindful of the bad intelligence that led to the invasion of iraq, and it's also clear, he's never wanted to get involved in syria. is there a graceful way out? >> what he's trying to do now is insist on ironclad proof. you wonder if he doesn't want an affidavit signed by bashar assad himself saying, yes, we did indeed use sarin gas on those people. short of that, i don't think he's going to do anything. the situation is so well advanced now. might have been different if we moved in there earlier. a president who didn't want to intervene to stop the deaths of what is now 70,000 people i don't think is going to go on at least arguably incomplete evidence that there's been these chemical weapons used. so my sense is, he doesn't want to do anything. for now at least he isn't going to do anything. >> do you think there's a downside in terms of his credibility in the middle east? >> it won't bother people going about their daily lives in amer

[laughter] >> i'm not. [laughter] a couple questions on national security. on syria, you said that the red line was not just about chemical weapons being used but being spread, and it was a game changer, seemed cut and dry. and now your administration seems to be suggesting that line is not clear. do you risk u.s. credibility if you don't take military action? and then on benghazi, there are some survivors of that terror
that president obama has put himself in a bit of a box here on syria. kept talking for months about red lines and consequences and game changers but you clearly mindful of the bad entell against that led into the invasion of iraq and also clear he never wanted to get involved military in syria. is there a graceful way out for him? >> what he will do and is trying to do is insist on ironclad proof. you wonder if he doesn't want an affidavit signed by bashar assad himself saying yes indeed we did use serin gas on these people. appetizing prospect. a president who didn't want to intervene to stop the deaths of what is now 70,000 people i don't think is delegate to go on at least argue youabley incomplete evidence there has been the chemical weapons used. my sense is he didn't want to do anything and for now at least he isn't going to do anything. >> chris: a down side in terms of credibility in the middle east? >> not the kind of thing that is going to bother people going about their daily lives in america but around the world this kind of apparent weakness has a price. it emboldens enemies and
to talk about syria. we will talk about this in the next smet length with the israeli ambassador. i want to ask you guys about it as well. after stating the use of chemical weapons was a red lien this week president obama seemed to back off that. take a look. >> this is not an on or off switch. this is an ongoing challenge that all of us have is to be concerned about. >> chris: senator manchin, as a member of the senate the armed services committee are you, first of all, persuaded that the assad regime did use chemical weapons and what do you make of the fact that the ident seemed to set this marker assad stepped over it and now he is backing away? >> from what i have been told and seen and in the briefings i have had, it shows that they have used it and do have the capa. there is some question after as we know iraq and how that had gone so there is questions in senators' minds, i believe. when we watch this whole thing unfold in syria right now, we look at syria from the standpoint do we send troops in. there is people advocating that. do we give all of the support we can to the allies
. >> chris: for months president obama said if assad used chemical weapons it would be he a game changer and now he seems to be steering away from any talk of precipitous action. let's see that then and now you. >> that is a red line for us and that there would be enormous consequences if we start seeing movement on the chemical weapons front or the use of chemical weapons. this is going to be a long-term proposition. it is not going be something that is solved easily overnight. >> chris: i understand you are not calling for any action. is your government troubled at all that red lines and enormous consequences have now you become a "long-term proposition"? >> we have a different red line entirely. if the syrian regime tries to transfer chemical weapons or what we call game changing weapons to the is systems in lebanon israel will react and we are serious about the red line and sticking about the red line and the people in syria though that. the chemical weapons situation again is very, very complex. this is an american call. the united states and israel are sovereign countries and we ha
. you know the message is okay, i will cross the red line that president barack obama of the united states keeps talking about. why does the u.s. say there is a read line on these issues? tens of thousands have been killed in the war. why a red line on this. >>. >> because if there was an incident or a massive attack, chemical weapons are used and 5,000 people die, or even 200 or 400 or 600 people die, and this is the first recognized use of chemical weapons against a civilian population in a decade and half, and there is no response, then you are encouraging every regime in the world that what is these horrible weapons to use them. this is the danger. that president, because he put this red line out there, could make himself look weak. could make the united states look weak. and could encourage others to use these things. >> right. >> that if you use the weapons and there is no response, then assad could feel em boldened. i can do this more and more. maybe his trial balloon, if you will. seems ridiculous to use a trial balloon like that. imagine, just to make an acorn size one and

air and water come to apply yet. you were talking just a few moments ago about obama care being implemented over the course of president obama's second term. but the reason that hhs is so much lower on that list is that a lot of those regulations haven't kicked in yet. good wham of a cost that wasn't estimated. when obama care was passed giving authority to hhs which benefits essential for cover. ones that became the most croferls became essential. every employer of a certain size provide see contraception cor-j -- coverage for all of their employees. that is enormous cost in terms of the number of the things that are going to be passed on to the rest of us higher premiums. >> tucker: people are ordered around what kind of light bulbs, toilet head. shower head. turn point people don't get to make their own choices. greg, thank you for being with us. >> good to be with you. >> alisyn: don't fear the loch ness monster. new monster lurking in the water. stay tuned. i know this is your favorite? >> bill: in a body of water near you. money, cars and clothes but don't want to work for
are right, president obama signed it. but then he voted for it. he couldn't have signed it if he hadn't first voted for it. they watched the sequester kick in. we talked about this. they watched cuts to headstart. they didn't do anything about it. kids thrown out of headstart. so what? was their attitude. they watched cuts to food stamps. didn't do anything. cuts to meals on wheels and watched teachers and first responders and cops and fire fighters getting fired by many cities and counties. they didn't do anything. but cuts in the penta goodeon or military didn't do anything. but when air traffic controllers were furloughed and the very first day of the furlough there were flight delays of up to two hours in some major airports and members of congress knew they had to go home for the weekend for another 10-daybreak, which they don't deserve and they might have to wait around the airport for an hour, boy, they got their ass in gear. on thursday the senate in one day passed a bill carving out an exception to the sequester for the faa so they can put all ai

options that the white house has been considering. president obama has been very careful in terms of not really talking about those options that are under consideration. tonight that changed and he said he is not at this point considering putting boots on the ground. using the term, he does not foresee putting boots on the ground in syria. the president has to some extent boxed him in. he said of course if syria uses chem weapons that would be a red line. the white house saying they believe chemical weapons were used but there are still too many questions about the origin of the weapons. president obama not ready to say how he is going to proceed when it comes to syria. so again we are still trying to get reaction to the israeli airstrike. >> andrea, you mentioned before john kerry is in moscow, on a trip specifically with the intent of trying to move forward diplomatically on presenting a u united front, to avoid further military escalation, to avoid a regional conflict. the chief on stek sell russia which is course with the assad regime, as well as iran. how does it change the n
as he has through the presidency between issues and crises not of his choice, obama seemed like a spectator as if he resigned himself to a reactive presidency. we have always talked about the thunder heads in congress. >> even when you were there. >> the exception. >> can i correct you? especially when i was there. there were more thunder heads per square inch. >> i covered congress before you, joe, it was even worse then. >> we are at a strange point where the president is not even six months into his second term and he already looks like a lame duck to many people who are top analyst. >> this is a familiar pattern sometimes in second terms but if you look back at six months and where barack obama thought he might be today, i hate to use this analogy but he is like my washington nationals. expectations are pretty high and barely keeping his head above water. i agree with sam's examples but the sequestration itself -- >> isn't it fascinating, al? i remember a lot of us talking to the president before and talking to president's people, they really believed that the re-election wo

on weapons of mass destruction. while president obama seems to have learned that lesson, many in the press and congress are pushing hard and fast for military intervention in syria. we will talk about what that would actually mean in a bit. first i want to share the three awesomist things on the internet today. beginning with a cool feature from the new york times. yes, scott fitzgerald novel, coming up with a film and the book is currently topping the amazon best seller list. the marketing of the book has the gatsby lovers up in arms. it is probably a good thing he is not around to see the film. barnes & noble will sell both editions and wal-mart will only sell the book with leo on the cover. perhaps that book seller just needs a reminder of last year's best seller. second awesomist thing -- by the way, that cover is awesome. second thing, a twitter trend that reached a whole new level. as salon puts it, anything and everything that is even the slightest potential to become a mean will get its own twitter account. case in point, clint eastwood's rnc speech to an empty chair. when senator
